Ascent Trip Report

Headed up from the south side and my purpose this time was to find a geocache that was close to the summit. The trail I used before was now blocked off and a different trail was made to accomodate mountain bikers and motorcycles. I did some cross country that involved some bushwhacking on the way up but managed to avoid all of it on the way down. I did find the old route on the way down and this saved me about a mile and a bunch of time on thh descent. The views up there are exceptional. I found a Samsung 5 phone near the summit which the owner had lost about 2 weeks before and i was able to return the phone with its treasure trove of family pictures to a very very happy owner. He had made two visits during the two weeks to try and find his phone.
